Dr. Felver is an assistant professor of psychology at Syracuse University and director of the Mind Body Laboratory. His research focuses on contemplative interventions to promote self-regulation, with special focus on mindfulness-based interventions. He is particularly interested in how contemplative interventions can be implemented in public school settings with students and teachers to support academic functioning and classroom behavior, and in families to improve parent-child communication and parent emotional regulation. His current research projects include: pilot trials of school-based contemplative curricula (i.e., Learning to BREATHE, Kripalu Yoga in the Schools, Soles of the Feet for Students), mindfulness-based interventions for young adults in college settings (i.e., Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), and laboratory-based research exploring the psychophysiological effects of mindfulness-interventions on self-regulatory processes and stress.
